Koalas.

Wait, I'm serious about this. The earth is on the brink of being overwhelmed by a population explosion of unbearable fuzzy cuteness.

Well, okay, so you have to have eucalyptus trees to be in any real danger from koalas. I think SE Pennsylvania is pretty safe, but San Francisco, watch out! Baruk Koala! Koala aimenu!

Yeah, yeah, they said the same thing about zebra mussels. OMG, so cute! Now look. Wait until koalas start jamming the intakes of hydroelectric plants, and flying into jet engines.

Having failed to convince the koalas to spring for tubal ligations or vasectomies, Aussie scientists intend to shoot the koalas with contraceptive darts.




CHOU

naga(meru)

meaning: gaze, look

眺望 == choubou == (noun) prospect, view, outlook
月を眺める == tsuki o nagameru == (expression) to gaze at the moon




Left radical is 'eye' (目), here meaning 'look'. Right radical is 'sign/trillion' (兆), acting phonetically to express 'distance'. Thus, 'look into the distance'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Trillion eyes gazing.'
